June's second visit with us and a perfect example of why we keep our
chips registered to us. Any person adopting from us is signing
a contract that they understand that our chips are locked and
remained registered to us and that, should their circumstances
change, if they find themselves unable to keep their dog it is to
come back to us. To protect that dog we have the chips locked down
to our ownership. Because of this policy we were able to
recover June when she found herself back in a shelter. The
owner we placed her with broke the contract by giving her to someone
else then that person gave her to she shelter... We were
able to recover June and she now has a wonderful home as a therapy
dog for a sweet lady going through some medical challenges.

multiple knee and back surgeries and spent a very long time on
strong medications, which contributed to behavioral and perception
issues. He has gone to a wonderful home where his gruff
surliness is understood and where he will receive nothing but the
Touble is a very special little guy. He had

Magical Rescue Moments.
Friday I was contacted by the granddaughter of
Foxy's owner. Grandma had passed away on Tuesday
searching for a spot for Foxy to go. Grandma had
adopted Foxy from one of our local shelters 13
years ago. He was about two at that time.
contacted that shelter and was told that they would
be glad to take Foxy back, but they felt he would
have a better chance at finding a home if they
contacted me. I did not hesitate for moment to take
this little senior guy in.
Teri arrived with Foxy she was frazzled for sure
after the long process of getting all in place with
the death of her grandmother. She was due to fly
back to her home and children in Texas at midnight
and you could see the relief in her face to know
that Foxy was cared for.
blessings - not 10 minutes after Teri left our home
I got a call from someone who was looking for a
senior Pom. They had just lost their own girl a few
days ago. Where they were looking for another girl
but, they didn't hesitate when the heard Foxy's
story. It was as if it was meant to be. Foxy now has
someone to love and help him through his loss and
his new family have a beautiful boy to fill the
whole left by their girl.

Jackson originally came to us from an abusive situation.
We had placed him in a wonderful home, but... the senior Yorkie in
the home could not adjust to having a new kid invade her space, so
he cam back to us. Jackson now has a wonderful home with
Skylar as his buddy. I am very happy that they are close to me
so I will be able to do Jackson's grooming.
***Special Needs - Heart Issues***
Dayton is a
super sweet guy who arrived suffering from an enlarged heart that
was putting pressure on his trachea and affecting his breathing.
After the first few days on the meds he showed much improvement.
At his arrival he was 8.6 pounds and breathing was becoming
increasingly difficult for him. The day he left a 5.2 pound happy
engaging guy. The young lady who adopted him has committed
herself to rescuing special needs kids and ensuring that they get
the very best of care. Dayton will enjoy the companionship of
a 13 year old pug.
